RW Scholarship – Awards Update
At the start of this year Kosdown Director David Downie was actively involved in initiating and helping to set up the RW Scholarship Fund. The scholarship was created in the memory of Kosdown friend and local Mordialloc identity Richard ‘Dickie’ Williams.
David has sat on the Board as secretary of the Fund since the scholarship was created and volunteers his time to help oversee its operation. We are now proud to provide an update (somewhat belatedly!) that the inaugural round of scholarships have been successfully awarded and handed out to our deserving recipients, with a total of $5,000 in scholarships being awarded.
2021 Student Scholarship Awards
Four Mordialloc Secondary College students were each awarded a $1,000.00 Student Scholarship. These were presented to the students at a whole school assembly at the end of April. Thankfully Covid regulations allowed a full attendance of all the schools students! Each successful applicant was awarded an individual $1,000.00 dollar scholarship.
We received many extremely impressive applications, but unfortunately could not award a scholarship to all applicants, much as we’d have loved to! Applications for the 2022 award will open in December, and all are encouraged to re-apply! In the meantime, we wish every one of the applicants success in their studies. We would like to congratulate our four deserving recipients:
- Zahra Konisberry (Athletics)
- Kirili Armstrong (Art)
- Lucy Beckett (Music)
- Max Reindel (Technology)
2021 Cricketer Scholarship Award
The 2021 RW Cricketers Scholarship Award was presented at the Mordialloc Cricket Club at the end of March. Junior club member Jack Lowe was presented with the Scholarship award for $1,000.00. The picture above shows Jack receiving his award on the night, with more pictures of the night below. The Presentation also included Andrew Jamison who has offered sponsorship of the Clubs senior uniforms and mentoring for Jack alongside the scholarship.
We would like to congratulate Jack on winning the award as a deserving recipient, good luck on the pitch Jack!
